HCMC – Tran Tuan Anh, former secretary of the Party Committee at the Ministry of Industry and Trade and former Minister of Industry and Trade, and other senior officials at the minsitry are facing disciplinary measures due to serious violations.

Tran Tuan Anh is now Politburo member and head of the Economic Commission of the Party Central Committee.

The Inspection Commission of the Party Central Committee held its 34th session from December 18 to 20, presided over by Tran Cam Tu, Politburo member and head of the Central Inspection Commission, to look into several cases, including the case at the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

Reviewing the results of an inspection which was conducted when there were signs of violations at the Party Committee of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Central Inspection Commission found that the ministry’s Party Committee had violated democratic centralism principles and working regulations.

It showed a lack of responsibility, loose leadership, and guidance leading to serious violations of the Party’s rules and the State’s laws on consultancy and issuance of mechanisms for solar and wind power development, on implementation of the adjusted Power Development Plan VII, on consultancy and issuance of business mechanisms, on management and use of the fuel price stabilization fund, on the planning, appraisal, approval, organization of bidding, and on implementation of projects/contract packages carried out by the Advanced International Joint Stock Company (AIC).

The Central Inspection Commission also found several officials and party members at the ministry had been disciplined and prosecuted for alleged criminal offenses.

The responsibility for these violations and shortcomings rests with the Party Committee of the Ministry of Industry and Trade in the terms of 2016-2021, and 2021-2026; the Standing Committee of the Party Committee of the ministry, and Party committees of the ministry’s relevant departments and bureaus.

Also held responsible are Tran Tuan Anh, Politburo member, head of the Central Economic Commission, former Secretary of the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Party Committee, and former Minister of Industry and Trade; Do Thang Hai, Party Committee member at the ministry and Deputy Minister; and Hoang Quoc Vuong, Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group’s Party Committee Secretary and chairman of the Board of Directors of the group, former Party Committee member, and former Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade.

Other responsible individuals are Nguyen Anh Tuan, the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Party Committee member, Deputy Party secretary, head of the ministry’s Organization and Personnel Department; Tran Huu Linh, Party Committee secretary and director general of the Market Management Department at the ministry; Hoang Tien Dung, Party Committee secretary and director general of the Electricity and Renewable Energy Department at the ministry; Tran Duy Dong, Party Committee secretary and director general of the Import-Export Department at the ministry; Phuong Hoang Kim, head of the Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Development Department at the ministry; Dang Huy Cuong, Standing Committee member of the Party Committee and member of the Board of Directors of the Vietnam Electricity Group, former Party Committee secretary and director general of the General Department of Energy at the ministry; Ly Quoc Hung, head of the Science and Technology Department at the ministry; and Vo Van Quyen, head of the Domestic Market Department at the ministry.

The Central Inspection Commission said that regarding these violations and shortcomings, the Standing Committee of the Party Committee of the Vietnam Electricity Group in the terms of 2015-2020 and 2020-2025 should be held accountable.

The commission also proposed disciplanary action against individuals such as Trinh Dinh Dung, former Central Party Committee member and former Deputy Prime Minister; Mai Tien Dung, former Central Party Committee member and former Minister/Head of the Government Office; Duong Quang Thanh, former Central Business Bloc Party Committee member, and incumbent Party Committee secretary and chairman of the Board of Directors of the Vietnam Electricity Group; Tran Dinh Nhan, former Deputy Party Committee secretary, and incumbent general director of the Vietnam Electricity Group; and Nguyen Danh Son, member of the Central Business Bloc Party Committee and director of the Power Trading Company.

The Central Inspection Commission concluded that the violations and shortcomings had caused serious consequences that are irreparable and that there is a high risk of significant damage being done to State funds and assets, wasting social resources, adversely affecting the reputation of the party organization and state management agencies, to the extent that disciplinary action needs to be considered.

The commission requested the Party Committee of the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the party committees, organizations in related ministries, sectors, localities and units to coordinate, guide the review, examine the responsibility, and discipline party organizations and members involved, reporting the results to the commission.
